Former tennis superstar and current cranky Knicks fan John McEnroe put his foot directly into his mouth this weekend when he spoke with NPR and praised Serena Williams as “incredible” and the “best female player ever,” before clarifying that she was not the best tennis player ever because “if she played the men’s…
Yasiel Puig and Madison Bumgarner got into it last night, prompting a team-wide scuffle and the eventual, inevitable Giants collapse after Bumgarner left the game with one hit through seven innings. Thankfully this happened on the first night of a three-game series, so tonight and tomorrow should be pretty spicy.
There’s been a fairly mundane controversy swirling about the college football offseason regarding the legality of satellite football camps (little coaching clinics put on by schools used as a recruiting tactic) and whether or not head coaches should attend. In April, the NCAA banned satellite camps, then reversed the…
If you’re gonna try to roast the Spelling Bee for being soft, the worst sin you can commit is bringing that weak shit (noun: substandard effort or soft response, e.g. “Kevin liked the Warriors, but they lost because they brought that weak shit.”).
Ohio State defensive coordinator Chris Ash has been hired to be the new head coach at Rutgers, and he wants everyone to know how excited he is about the new job:
Chelsea are struggling mightily, in 15th place in the Premier League and beset by infighting and reports that coach José Mourinho is about to be fired. But today they sunk to a new low, seen as such a laughingstock across Europe that even the manager of a mediocre Russian club is ripping on them.
Bob Costas will apologize to Pedro Strop for launching into an inexplicable, hilarious, and just plain dirty burn on the Cubs reliever after Strop’s poor outing Friday night.
Pedro Strop didn’t have the best performance out of the Cubs’ pen tonight, giving up a homer and then putting two more guys on base. But it apparently infuriated MLB Network’s Bob Costas, who hammered Strop with a burn so raw we can’t even endorse it:
There were a lot of important things to discuss at today’s Department of Justice press conference about the corruption charges being brought against FIFA, but let’s worry about that stuff later. For now, we can focus on this dude from the IRS, who stepped up to the podium and unleashed hell:
The Washington Wizards completed their first-round sweep of the Toronto Raptors over the weekend, which means it’s the perfect time for Paul Pierce, Troll Prince of the NBA, to do what he does best.
For the first time since being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kevin Love will play a game against his former team, the Minnesota Timberwolves, in Minnesota tonight. To show everyone just how pumped they are for the return of their former star, the T-Wolves put together this very well-produced hype video.
Kyle Smith, a sophomore defensive tackle for NAIA Carroll College in Montana, received horrific burns last month after a cooking accident at his girlfriend's home. Smith was attempting to make a battered, deep-fried onion when everything went horribly wrong.
This tweet comes to us from Dan Roche, who covers the Bruins for WBZ and was flying back to Boston this morning after watching the B's dismantle the Penguins in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals. It's probably the only decent joke that has ever been told by a pilot.
Like SNL, half of minor league baseball, and Mets GM Sandy Alderson, the Dallas Stars had some fun with the Manti Te'o story yesterday. During their home-opener (a 4-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes) the stadium's jumbotron operators spotted an empty seat and, in a mash-up of old Clint Eastwood empty-chair jokes and new…
